HILE there are many lines of railway 

possessing special features of in- 
. terest to tourists, and which can 
i-'^ boast of greater publicity, yet there 
are few, if any, that combine such 
attractions as are offered to the 
wSportsman and Tourist by the

RAILWAYS. 

These lines, extending from Lake Champlain to Georgian Bay, 
(Lake Huron), open up an entirely new country of special in- 
terest ; and in selecting a pleasant outing for the summer of 1897, 
whether it be the person of leisure or the less fortunate indi- 
vidual, who has to crowd the whole summer holidays into two 
short weeks, we can safely recommend a visit to any of the fol- 
lowing points :

. LAKE CHAflPLAIN . 

T ITTLE need be said here in praise of beautiful Champlain. 

I— ✓ Sky-blue waters nestling between the Adirondack Mount- 
/ ains of New York and the Green Mountains of Vermont ; 

elegant side-wheel steamers carrying merry excursion 
parties and tourists from the busy cities, and hundreds of palatial 
hotels located on either shore, to the many islands laid out into 
attractive parks in the different parts of the Lake, it is no 
wonder the annual programme invariably includes a visit to Lake 
Champlain. The Catholic Summer School of America, which 
holds its fifth session during the summer of '97, draws a great 
number of students and others from all States of the Union and 
Canada, to the spacious hall and grounds of the Association, 
situated on the west shore of the Lake near the City of 
Plaltsburg. 

1 EAVING Rouse's Point at the head of the Lake, Canada 
Atlantic trains run through a stretch of level farm land, 50 

/ miles, to Valleyfield, on the St. Lawrence River, where 
the Black Bass Fishing is of the very best. Good guides 
can be procured on application to the Company's Agent. 

THERE are many pleasant drives along the shore of the St. 
Lawrence, which at this point narrows into separate 
channels forming the Coteau Rapids, while six miles down 
the river are the " Cedars,"— the prettiest Rapid of the 
series. Those who have not already witnessed a steamer run- 
ning the Rapids can enjoy that pleasure from the carriage road 
which skirts the river at the Cedar Rapids. 




CEDAR RAPIDS. 

. QTEAMERS of the R. & O. Nav. Co. pass through Valleyfield 
M every day at 5.00 p.m. for Stanley Island, Cornwall, 
/ loronto, etc. Steamer Chaffey leaves Valleyfield at 2.00 
P«m. for Coteau, Port Lewis and Lancaster, connecting 
at Coteau Landing with the R. & 0. Nav. Go's Steamer for 

7 



Montreal. This is the most interesting 50 miles of water trip 
on the St. Lawrence. 

PONTINUING on to Ottawa the St. Lawrence River is cros- 
sed by a steel bridge over a mile in length. The bridge 
is built across the islands at the foot of Lake St. Francis, 
and on one of these islands is located the Company's Park, 
with commodious Pavilion for the use of excursion parties — a 
favorite place for Montreal and Ottawa excursions owing to its 
invariably cool air. 

A FEW yards from the St. Lawrence River bridge will be seen 
the extensive work in progress on the Soulanges Canal, which 
will be ten^miles in length, with a depth of 16 feet, permit- 
ting vessels of 14 feet draught to pass the Coteau, Cedar and Cas- 
cade Rapids. At Coteau Junction the tracks of the Grand Trunk 
main line are crossed, while six miles further on is the Canadian 
Pacific (Smith's Falls Line). Glen Robertson is the junction for 
Vankleek Hill and Hawkesbury, the former making a pretty pict- 
ure viewed from the valley through which the railway runs — the 
latter on the Ottawa River in full view of the Laurentian range on 
the opposite side. The large lumber mills of the Hawkesbury 
Lumber Co. are located at this point. Alexandria, the chief town 
of Glengarry County, is a thriving place of two thousand popu- 
lation, with an electric light plant and a system of water works. 
All trains stop at Alexandria for refreshments. At South Indian 
another line branches out to Rockland, on the Ottawa River, where 
the extensive lumber mills of W. C. Edwards Co. are located. 

Eastman's Springs is the last station on the line 

before reaching Ottawa, and takes its name from the mineral 
springs (seven in number) situated immediately opposite the station. 
These springs furnish an abundant supply — Gas, Iron, Sulphur and 
Saline Water — noted for their valuable medicinal properties. 
Messrs. Boyd & Son, proprietors of the hotel and springs, have 
recently added to the house new and improved baths, resulting in 
a large increase to their already long list of patrons. 




as they stand so prom- 
inently on I'arliament Hill, will always be the main feature of 
interest. Lovell, in referring to them, says : '* Their splendor, 

S 



their tine Commanding site, together with the beauty of the sur- 
rounding scenery, places them in a very enviable position com- 
pared with other structures used for similar purposes, and must ever 
be objects of interest to the tourist and stranger, and pride to the 
people of Canada." Ottawa has a number of handsome Parks pos- 
sessing almost matchless natural scenery. An excellent Electric 
Railway Service is maintained between the Parks, where Band 
Concerts are held during summer evenings. The leading Hotels 
of the city are first-class in every particular. Trains of the Canada 
Atlantic & Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry Sound Rys. arrive at and de- 
part from Central Depot in the heart of the city. Through train 
for Parry Sound leaves Central Depot, Ottawa, daily (except Sun- 
day). For the first eighty miles the road runs through a prosperous 
farming district skirting the Ottawa River for several miles, and 
crossing the Mississippi River at Galetta. A stage line connects 
this station with Fitzroy Harbor, four miles distant, at the 



HORSESHOE FALL (CHATS). 

confluence of the Cavp, Mississippi and Ottawa Rivers. The drive 
to the Harbor is a pleasant one, as the road follows the windings 
of the Mississippi. Comfortable quarters will be found with Mr. 
Kedey, whose hotel is built on a point running well out into the 
Ottawa River and diiectly facing the "Chat Falls." These Falls 
are rather a curiosity, owing to the rock over which the water flows 
being covered by a heavy growth of forest, and unless viewed in a 
direct line with the flow of the water it appears to be pouring out 
from the roots of tlie trees. The water passes over the rocky ob- 
struction in thirteen different channels to the level of Deschene 
Lake, 45 feet below, each one forming a pretty waterfall. There is 
no better fishing on the Ottawa than at Fitzroy Harbor. 

Arnprior. Five mlles from Galetta the Madawaska River 
is crossed at the Town of Arnprior, a thriving town of four thous- 
and population. Arnprior is very prettily situated at the junction 
of the Ottawa and Madawaska Rivers, and offers many attractions 
in the way of boating, drives, &c. One mile and a-half from the 
town, on the banks of the Madawaska, are the " Diamond Park 
Springs," where many repair each summer for the benefit of the 
mineral waters and baths. 

9 



Renfrew. At Renfrew the line leaves the valley of the 
Madawaska for that of the Bonnechere. Renfrew, the center ot a 
rich farming community, is a well built, prosperous town of three 
thousand inhabitants, with good water power furnished by the 
Bonnechere River. The town is noted for the extra quality of flour 
turned out by the several flour mills located there. The largest 
Creamery in the Dominion is also within the town limits. 

Oolden L^ke, nine miles west of Eganville, 12 x 2 miles, 
presents a nice appearance from the train, the opposite or north 
shore being bordered its entire length by high hills. At Barry's 
Bay, 107 miles west of Ottawa, there is excellent brook trout fish- 
ing. Mr. J. Inglis will furnish all information to sportsmen. At 
this point again the line parallels the waters of the Madawaska. 
A steamer runs daily into the County of Hastings, 27 miles.'^This 



/ 



SCENE IN ALGONQUIN PARK. 

is a trip that will repay anyone who has the time to take advantage 
of it. The 27 miles is comprised in six miles of a bay, three miles 
of lake (Keminiskeke), and six miles of ordinary river. The latter, 
, 12 miles up the York Branch, coml>ines scenery that can hardly, be 
found elsewhere. For several miles the river is between banks 
from two to three hundred feet high, widening and narrowing at 
almost regular intervals, the outlet from one expansion to the other 
being invisible until within a few yards of the opening, reminding 
one of the links of a chain. Here seems to be the home of ihe 
wild duck ; old and young are seen in myriads. Tall cranes of 
every shade of color add to the beauty of the locality. Comfortable 
quarters can be obtained at the end of the route; the steamer re- 
turns at 7.00 A. M., connecting af Barry's Bay with trains going 
east and west. 

OpeOngO Hills. Eganville is the nearest station on the 
line to "Lake Clear "—a body of clear, deep water, situated at 
the foothills of the Opeongo M<iuntains, eight miles from Eganville 
Station. The lake is 7 x 2 miles. Lake trout are plentiful in this 
lake, while brook trout are caught in the outlet, Hyland Lake 



10 



and Hyland Brook, four miles further south, furnish good trout 
fishing. A. McDonell, of Eganville, supplies good comfortable 
conveyances for passengers lestined for these points. 




PRIVATE LODGE, OPEONGO HILLS. 

/Vladawaska, 130 miles west of Ottawa; refreshment 
station. Up to a year ago Madawaska was about the end of civili- 
zation in this direction, and it will be noticed that the country be« 
comes rougher in appearance as progress is made west. The road 
follows from Madawaska to Whitney the south bank of the Mada- 
waska River. Between these two points it is almost a perpetual 
waterfall. " Whitney " is situated at the foot of Long Lake, and 
is the headquarters of the St. Anthony Lumber Co. From here on 
to Georgian Bay the scenery is grand. Near Cache Lake the train 
passes into 



ISLBT LAKE. 
U 



AlgOriQUin Park, a reserve of nearly two thousand 
square miles, set apart by the Ontario Government as a preserve 
for game, all kinds of which are found within its limits ; and fre- 
quently deer, bears or beaver are seen in the lakes or wood as they 
hurry from the noise of the locomotive. As Thousand Island Park 
in the St. Lawrence takes its name from the many islands it con- 
tains, so might this picturesque reserve be termed " Thousand 
Lake Park," as fully 50 per cent of its surface is water. The Gov- 
ernment had also an eye to the preservation of important rivers 
rising in the limits of the Park, as within a few miles one sees the 
head waters of the Madawaska, Muskoka, Petawawa, Bonnechere, 
Amable du Fond and Magnetawan rivers, all important streams 
emptying into Georgian Bay and the Ottawa River. The numer- 
ous lakes visible from the train are mostly bordered_^by high banks, 
in places abrupt rocky bluffs, but principally steep sloping banks 
covered by a heavy growth of trees — the giant pine towering above 
the stately birch, or, it may be, the symmetrical spruce reaching 
above its less favored brethren of the forest, reminding one of the 
steeples of a city as they appear above the house tops ; for miles 
there is brought to the view of the traveller an ever-changing 
panorama -of forest, lake and stream, as the train follows the un- 
even shores of the latter. To give some idea of the extent of water 
along this line, we give a number of the principal lakes visible from 
the train, many of them perfect gems : —

At Kavensworlh signs of civilization are again visible, but he 
conniry is so new that the settler has made very little change in its 
appearance. At Kearney the waters of the Magnetawan River are 
crossed. There is good brook trout fishing in these waters. Lynch

pleasure or fishinjj parties. At Scotia Junction the Northern Divi- 
sion of the Grand Trunk is crossed ; eight miles further is Spruce- 
dale, where there is good trout fishing in Doe Lake. R. Raaflanb, 
of the Sprucedale House, will take fishing parties in charge who 
may come that way. At Maple Lake Station connection is made 
by a stage line of eight miles to Port Cockburn, on the famed 

MUSkoka Lakes. These gems of the highlands of 
Ontario, we need but mention, can be reached conveniently from 
this line. The attractions of Muskoka are so many and varied that 
one would require to write a book to give them in detail. Maple 
Lake Station is the centre of numerous lakes noted for black bass, 
dore and trout fishing. Mr. J. Sword, of the Maple Lake House, 
is familiar with the section and can give valuable information to 
sportsmen. 

QeOrgian Bay. Fifteen mlles west from Maple Lake is 
Parry Sound Station on the shores of Georgian Bay, built on the 
extreme edge of Rose Point, which here almost reaches across the 
narrow channel to Parry Island. A good view is obtained of the 
town of Parry Sound and the Belvidere Hotel, as it stands like a 
sentinel on the high bank above the town. A few steps from the 
station, on the only level piece of ground within two miles, is the 
Rose Point Hotel. The Rose Point and Belvidere Hotels have 
already enjoyed several prosperous seasons, and the recoid of the 
register showing the same names each year is the best proof that the 
comfort of guests is a first consideration with the management. In 
addition to a private wharf at the hotel door, where regular line 
steamers call, the Rose Point Hotel has a comfortable Steam Yacht 




GLIMPSE OF PARRY SOUND HARBOUR, 



for charter and is freely used by guests in navigating the intricate 
channels of Georgian Bay's thirty thousand islands. Here is com- 
fort waiting the weary worker of the hot cities-fishing, boatine 
and bathing in the clear, cool waters of this arm of one of the ereat 
lakes is something worth living for. Guests of the hotel also make 
up hshing parties and take the morning train to some of the inland 
lakes, returning to Rose Point in the evening
